DALLAS (KRLD) – A little man in a red suit caused some big problems for police in Dallas.

“Everyone be on the lookout for him,” said Officer Gonzalez while holding up a wanted poster with a drawing of the Elf on the Shelf.  “He’s a white male, approximately six inches tall and he’s wanted for holiday mischief.”
The elf makes a mess with black fingerprint powder in the evidence room, gets into a candy dish on a detective’s desk and even steals treats from one of the K-9 officers.
